I worked at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Excellent opportunities to grow and expand skill set and knowledgebase. Boeing offers excellent benefits such as paying for any and all education that employees want to pursue.

Cons

Nothing comes to mind. Boeing is great place to work and grow in one's career. There are lots of opportunities to build up soft skills like leadership abilities.

Advice to Management

Understanding most managers have hundreds of employees below them, it seems hard that managers can take the time to really connect with their employees.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting contracts
    Good vacation accrual rate based on seniority
    Good 401K plan

    Cons

    Limited innovation
    Tasks can be boring even though the contract appears fun
    Very mixed management - can be inept to great
    Nicknamed the Lazy B for a reason
    Aging population
    Mixed communication between engineers and higher level management
    Compensation is not as competitive as management likes to believe
    "Salary adjustments" can get disappointing if HR refuses to promote you - regardless of anyone's input

    Advice to Management

    Your aging population is hurting your company while your young engineers leave for more innovation and better compensation. You need to flow up information more from your senior level engineers, who know the proposed products and the technologies to be used. Ignoring input and concerns from these engineers will only hurt your products and Boeing's reputation on being innovative.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work / life balance.
    Plenty of room to grow and most of the workforce will retire soon (this means more opportunities for new people).
    Plenty of work to get done, even though much of it is boring.

    Cons

    Not very cutting edge IT in use.
    Very disorganized and management generally doesn't pay enough attention to issues.
    Very poor communication between groups, for some reason leadership thinks more status meetings will help so you will be joining countless status meetings that don't accomplish anything at all.
    TERRIBLE pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks, defend your employees, stop managing like it is 1970.
